Music Industry And Label Tour Support

Tour Support

In the music industry you need to know about tour support from you label. When making your own music ant touring their are many things to consider and know from the get go. When you first sign as a new artist, you will  need to go on tour for several reasons. Just keep in mind that do expect to make much of a profit when you are new and go on tour for the first time. With travel , hotels, food, agents, and manager, the expenses are pretty high. As a midlevel artist you will break even and maybe make a little bit of profit. Touring is very important for your career. This is so you can build an audience, sell more records, play bigger concerts,etc. Tour support is money from your label and ranges from $50,000 to $150,000. This is only if you are signed on a major label. If you are signed with an indie label the range is $10,000 to $15,000. Touring is hard to convince your label. The label will have to think that their is a good reason to tour. Keep in mind that not every signed recording artist does major tours. If you are a artist that is all about touring you best get in clause in your contract that you want to tour and if you are more of a performance based artist, you might get the green light from your label. If you have to stage presence and just record well, than just stick to recording albums and hope you sell millions. To guarantee yourself a tour, you need to break the top 40. This is called CHR. It means contemporary hit radio. If you can conquer this you will be able to tour.
